Chick-Fil-A Sauce

Have you ever tried Chick-Fil-A Sauce?

We don’t go out to eat very often, but when we do I am always the first to suggest we head to Chick-Fil-A, just so I can dip my delicious waffle fries in the goodness they have claimed as their “special sauce.” I am that person who sneaks a few in my purse just so I can enjoy it at home, putting it on just about everything.

Well, those days of sneaking extra sauce from Chick-Fil-A are over! We’ve recreated a copycat chick-fil-a sauce at home with ingredients we already had in our fridge.

We love dipping our Homemade Chick Fil A Nuggets!

This homemade Chick-Fil-A sauce is so easy to make and is spot on! It only takes a few simple ingredients. It almost tastes like our Grilled Honey Mustard Chicken, with a spice of barbecue sauce.

How to make Chick-Fil-A Sauce

Here is what we used to make our sauce:

I used lemon juice from pre-juiced lemons, but you can use fresh lemon juice for a stronger flavor.

If you are looking for a healthier alternative, you can also use Greek yogurt in place of mayonnaise. It won’t taste the *quite* same, but again, it is a healthier alternative. Just a few ingredients and the sauce is all made! Happy dipping!

saving your crystallized honey

This recipe calls for honey, which was worrisome because I checked my honey and found it to be crystallized and hard.

I’ve heard about a lot of honey fixes, such as microwaving, but I recently discovered that it will only make your problem worse later on and could even burn the honey and ruin the flavor.

I have now started to heat up a pot of water and placed my honey in it. It softens the sides and then I use a popsicle stick to stir and combine it.

This method has worked like a charm for me. I’m not against microwaving it when you are in a time crunch. But from what I have read and learned (yes from the internet as well as personal experience), microwaving can damage the honey.

    • I'm not sure what could have gone wrong. We used Best Foods mayonnaise. If you used a store brand and it was a little on the runny side that could alter the recipe. Also, be sure to shake your mustard well before using so all of the water doesn't come out before the mustard.
  1. My family is on its second batch of this sauce and I doubled it! It is great on chicken wraps, my own version of chicken sandwiches, broiled venison, and tonight's entree of bacon wrapped goose! We can not tell the difference. Now I can stop hoarding the little packets. Thanks for a great recipe that actually tastes like the original.
